MODULAR HEAT-STORING AND VENTING MINI GREENHOUSE

A protective cover for plants made from translucent or transparent rigid or semi rigid plastic material. This cover is comprised of double walls capable of being filled with and retaining water or another liquid suitable for heat storage. The cover involves modular components including side and/or end walls that are vertically separated and may be placed in series. Contact surfaces between walls may incorporate some curvature. The walls are supported by an external arch or other appropriate structure. The walls may have a curved bottom that collects rain or other water and may act as a pivot for opening and closing the vent area. The invention overcomes scale limitations of passive heat storing plant covers that feature liquid filled walls. The invention optimizes heat retention in liquid filled protective covers and provides flexible height to width ratios. The invention also allows for adequate passive venting in such covered areas via convection. These benefits are achieved via modular cover sections, including distinctive side or end walls that are separated on vertical planes and include one or more curved contact surfaces.
